Cooks

This risk assessment has been produced in order to assist cooks to do their job safely. Cooks and chefs spend most of the day on their feet, and it is often necessary to lift and carry heavy bags or boxes of ingredients. The commercial kitchen is full of sharp blades and dangerously hot surfaces, so both cuts and burns are commonplace. During a busy shift the floors can become slippery from grease or moisture, creating a slipping hazard. Many of the powerful cleansers, grease cutters and sanitizers used in the industry are toxic and corrosive, presenting health risks of their own when used incorrectly. The cooks are exposed to a wide range of threats such as mechanical hazards (cutting and needle stick injuries), burns, threats of electrocution, etc.  An interactive OiRA tool intended for cooks which comprises a basic description of  kitchens, encourages cooperation between employees and employers and significantly contributes to improvements in the workplace and working environment.

Metal workers

This risk assessment has been produced in order to assist metalworkers to do their job safely. Metal workers are exposed to different hazards like mechanical hazards, extreme temperatures (liquid metal), recurring tasks, lifting heavy loads, the dangers of airborne particles, the risk of electrocution, frequent slips and falls. They are exposed to the hazardous substances and biological agents. An interactive OiRA tool for metalworkers comprises a basic description of the risks to which metal workers are exposed during their work. With this and the proposed measures to reduce risks, the OiRA tool for metal workers encourages cooperation between employees and employers. This OiRA tool was designed to promote health in the workplace, with the combined efforts from employers, workers and society as a whole to improve the health and well-being in the workplace. Employers are responsible for its implementation.
